### How many grams are in one mole of water?

one mole of any element is equals to its gam(Gram Atomic Mass) and one mole of any molecule is also equals to that molecules gram atomic mass. Lets calculate the gram molecular mass of water : h2o = 2 hydrogen atoms, 1 oxygen atom = 2 hydrogen x 1g (gram atomic mass of hydrogen) + 1 oxygen x 16g (gram atomic mass of oxygen) = 2 + 16 = 18g Therefore 1 mole of water…

### What weighs a decagram?

Decagram One decagram is 10 grams, one decigram is 1/10 gram One hectogram is 100 gram, one centigram is 1/100 gram One kilogram is 1000 gram, one milligram is 1/1000 gram * * * * * Pedantic correction: Nothing can weigh a decagram because a decagram is a unit for measuring mass, not weight. Mass is NOT the same as weight.
